Badminton Europe in the new year released the first series of the BEC Golden Shuttle, where Europe’s top players are put to the test to see how much they actually know about badminton!
The BEC Golden Shuttle travels across Europe and challenges players to step off-court and compete against each other, not with their rackets, but with their badminton knowledge. The winner will get the coveted BEC Golden Shuttle and, of course, bragging rights during training!

In January, the first series of three episodes were released for fans to enjoy and play along with their favourite stars. In the first few weeks, thousands of fans have already watched the episodes across our platforms.

If you haven't already, click to watch the episodes: 

Episode One – Nhat Nguyen vs Paul Reynolds (IRE)
Episode Two – Marcus Ellis vs Lauren Smith (ENG)
Episode Three – Robin Tabeling vs Selena Piek (NED)

Quiz format
Each episode has three rounds. The first is on their country’s badminton history (or sometimes on each other’s career!), the second round is on World Badminton, and the final round gives each player three lives and asks them to take it in turns to list answers to one question. They lose a life per incorrect answer.

The player with the most correct answers at the end wins the BEC Golden Shuttle! 

A sneak peek into series two
The next series of three episodes sees us move into central Europe, visiting France, Germany and then dropping by our Centre of Excellence in Denmark. 

If you have any match-ups you would really like to see, drop us a comment and we will try to make it happen!
